Call to Worship [Based on Psalm 1]

There is Instruction here, that calls us.
Instruction like a river, and like a tree planted by a river.
Let us delight in it;
Let us drink deep from it;
Let us be transformed by it;
Let us worship God!

Happy are those
    who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
    or sit in the seat of scoffers;
but their delight is in the law of the HOLY ONE,
    and on God’s law they meditate day and night.
They are like trees
    planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
    and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.

The wicked are not so,
    but are like chaff that the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;
for the HOLY ONE watches over the way of the righteous,
    but the way of the wicked will perish.

Psalm 1
